The Appledore Maritime Players have received a generous donation from Torridge District Councillors.

AN AMATEUR dramatics group in Appledore have received a generous donation from two Torridge District Councillors.

The Appledore Maritime Players received a donation of �400 from Councillors Andrew Eastman and Barry Edwards who both live in Appledore.

The councillors gave �200 each to the group from their community grant pot.

The Players, who are now in the 14th year, used the money to help buy a fire curtain and sound equipment for future productions.

Casting for next year’s play, The Girls of Blossom Hill by Tom Waters, will start next month.
